FFA Studio & Gallery Events
In 2020 FFAA opened a 2800 sq. ft. studio/gallery space in the at Strathearn Centre at 9532 – 87 Street in Edmonton AB – see map). The space is shared with the Alberta Council for the Ukrainian Arts (ACUA). The studio/gallery is used jointly as a multi-purpose space for meetings, workshops, exhibitions and open studio days.
The door at 9532 opens directly into the studio.
There is free parking in front and a café nearby. There are also tables and chairs available outside for visitors’ use during mild weather.
New Studio Space Update for October 2022
The FFAA/ACUA Studio is moving to a new location. It seems that with a future LRT station next door, the Strathearn strip mall suddenly has much greater income-generating potential so future plans for the property include demolishing the old building.
Over the last few months, ACUA and the FFAA Facility committee have conducted an intensive search and a new location has recently been leased. The new studio address is 10554 - 110 St NW, Edmonton.
The last date for use in the Strathern location is September 30, 2022. There will be a few weeks needed to pack-up and move everything to the new location, including fixtures.
We will post another notice as soon as we know when the new studio will be ready for bookings.
